Is that an air ID panel between the exhausts on the ammo hoarder?

Apparently it is - by this time there was a risk of attack by British and American aircraft, hence the US-style panel.

Yes air ID panel . Under the panel is a semi standard stowage box which quite a few T-34/85s ended up getting . You can sometimes see the 4  mounting brackets around the transmission access hatch . Will try to find picture

What about having some tank crew in the stowage set....? Not quite as many as the PSC stowage set perhaps, but would be a way to get some crew for kits that don't have any (and take advantage of your improvements in figures too). Particularly something like EW Russian crew for your T34 kit, etc?

Personally I would prefer crew and stowage to be separate (the PSC set is the reason writ large).

Crew sets make more sense as individual blisters otherwise you would end up with a lot of unused figures.

Having assembled the M4A3E8,  I am now trying to decide about stowage.

One thing I am short on is spare HVSS wheels.

For the VVSS Shermans individual track links for the turret.

Having gone through the other replies i would like to suggest the following., some have already been mentioned. Mostly US stuff
 Spare hvss road wheels
Individual 30 and 50 cal ammo cans as opposed to a bunch, some could be have open lids with ammo exposed
Few lengths of above ammo.
Spare tools such as sledge hammer,axe,shovels etc
US pioneers tool rack both empty and full of tools.
Some tank ammo 75,76,105 loose rounds maybe an open box with rounds.
Wood tank round boxes.
Ration boxes
Radio sets
As mentioned air cooled 50 cal.
And any equivalent British stuff such as radio set , open ammo boxes with round lewis ammo mags, 17 pdr ammo etc
